Introduction: Blind robot that can run.

Blind robot that can run: MIT researchers have built a “blind” robot that can navigate its surroundings without the help of camera vision or external environmental sensors. Its creators hope it is going to be useful in situations dangerous for humans, such as power plant inspections or rescue missions.

That’s thanks two new algorithms developed by Sangbae Kim, associate professor of mechanical engineering at MIT. One helps the robot decide how to proceed after it’s encountered an obstacle – whether it should step forward, for example, or pull back – while the other helps it figure out how much force to use for each of those actions so as to complete its process of motion successfully.
